Very stylish coffee table made with pallets

First things first, Find a pallet and pull it apart :-) the not so easy part!!

 Second give your cut to size piece a good clean and dry out in the sun !! easy part :-)
 3rd you put it all together with some careful measuring and placing. I even used the original nails to keep it completely recycled... glass recycled too!!
 The end result is devine. i made a shelf to hold what ever you want, wide enough to hold bottles. :-)
 Put some caster wheels under for style and ease of cleaning. She is quiet a heavy piece. 
 Love it, Love it, Love it!!! Ok you need some tools but you should try it. 
recycle, reuse, repurpose!!!!!!!

I got another pallet :-) This time a smaller coffee table, with a round piece of glass (from op shop)!!!
Made a shelf in the middle to hold my magazines.... perfect...  

Bedside table with a difference

Why not try a bedside table out of something unusual!! Old wire crate and a piece of glass, something from nature (pine cones) and wow - cute bedside table. 

More repurpose ideas. Go for it!!

More repurpose ideas, for your beautiful unique home, that can cost next to nothing :-) 
I found pallet at a plumbing store, which they gave me. I wanted to stencil it, so found my stencil from nature and spray painted it on. Turning it into a very individual, one of a kind coffee table. LOVE IT!!

close up :-)
You know how you never really know were to keep all those extra buttons you get on your new clothes. well use a zip tie and a cute bottle and attach it to your new pegboard storage wall mount :-)

beautiful organised closet :-)

A friend made a simple frame for my pegboard. I then found some cool cupboard handles (you can get some real unique ones out there) and some pegboard hooks from the hardware store! and I have a great place to hang my handbags. Now I can see them I will use them more often and they not all over the wardrobe floor :-) brilliant !!!!! you can use this to hang your jewellery, scarfs, etc etc. 
Another great storage idea. Easy to do. Very inexpensive!
 What to do with a pegboard????????

Looking for some ideas?

I recently re-decorated keegans room!! My skater dude, wanted a skate industrial kinda look. I painted it an industrial grey and...  I went to a shop fitting store and got a cool wall rack to store and display his skate gear :-) There are tons of accessories that can be added to it!! It even was a second hand shop fitting store, bonus. Result a super cheap transformation.
